f you're using Excel and negative numbers aren't displaying with parentheses, you can change the way negative numbers are displayed. But if that doesn't work, or if the parentheses option ($1,234.10) isn't available, it's likely because an operating system setting isn't set properly. If you're using a Mac, make sure you use the App Store and update to the latest version of macOS. If you're using Windows, use one of the following solutions to change the negative number format. Keep in mind that changing the setting will affect all programs on your computer, not just Excel.

No, it isn't. It is as you wrote it the first time, to wit: =B1+NPV(B7,B2:B6) .

It might be helpful if you provided a copy of the instructions.
Ideally, do not retype them yourself. We all make mistakes.
If the instructions are provided in a file, attach the file; or upload it to a file-sharing website, and post the download URL. I like box.net/files; others like dropbox.com. The download URL should not require that we log in.
Alternatively, take a photo of the instructions and provide that image file.

Because that is the correct result (well, one of two possible results) for the cash flows that you posted.
The following demonstrates the calculations. Note that my cell references are different because I inserted a row with column titles.

D9: =NPV(23%, D3:D7) + D2
That applies to Question #A.
I do not believe you provide sufficient information for us to answer Question #B, namely ``the rupee/dollar exchange rate on December 31st for the next six years are listed in the popup table``.
But I believe the following demonstrates the calculations.
Note: Calculated amounts might differ due to rounding.
G3: =IF(B3="", "", B3/F3)
H3: =IF(C3="", "", C3*85%/F3)
I3: =SUM(G3, H3)
I10: =NPV(23%, I4:I8) + I3
